Learning, Grounding, Growing: Practical Tools for 2SLGBTQ+ Youth

Posted on August 22, 2022

In late 2021 / early 2022, we hosted four skills-based, mental health workshop series to teach 2SLGBTQ+ practical tools to support themselves and their peers. Topics included somatic/embodied practices, boundaries and relationships, arts-based exploration, and active listening.


As part of this project — which has generously been funded by the City of Toronto — we developed additional tools,  which we’re excited to release today!


We created two zines and a video. The zines cover somatic experiencing and using metaphors to talk about emotions, while the video provides a primer on boundaries.


View the tools on our Publications page. 


Lots of care and intention has been poured into the creation of these tools, and we hope you find them useful <3
